Italian Car Day August 8,2015 Toronto Canada

Postby Nick Puopolo » Sun Jun 28, 2015 4:31 pm

Fueled by the passion for Italian automobiles, Italian Car Day was born ….Our mission is to provide a Relaxed and Casual environment for Italian Car and Motorcycle enthusiasts to exhibit their Belle Macchine ......while raising awareness for the benefit of Safehaven.
Today, Italian Car Day (ICD) is considered the largest gathering of Italian cars in Canada.
Now in its 5th year, ICD's success is due to the impressive roster of Italian exotic and classic machines wrapped in the hospitality and charisma of the Italian Culture.
Nestled in the heart of Vaughan, the city is home to the largest Ital-Canadian community who passionately showcase at "Boyd Conservation Area" their Fiats, Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, Alfa Romeos and more.
While we enjoy showing off our beauties, the real purpose of our events raising awareness for a great Charity – Safehaven Project for Community Living, whereby all proceeds from the event are donated. http://www.safehaven.to
Italian Car Day is proud to have raised over $150,000.00 over the last 4 events.
We thank all our sponsors and Partners who continue to support ICD every year......for more information on all the activities, rallies and pre-event activities sign-up on our NEW interactive web site at http://www.italiancarday.com

Italian Car Day will have some spectacular cars on display

One of them will be a 1956 Maserati 200SI Chassis 2401


Chassis 2401 occupies a place of distinction in the evolution of Maserati sports racing cars, as it was the first 200S chassis produced, the works development car for the series and a member of the factory racing team. As the first of the line, the Maserati factory was entirely responsible for its construction, making this car a rarity amongst the various 200S models. Chassis 2401 was so far ahead of regular 200S production, that upon its debut in May 1955, it wore coachwork unmistakable from the preceding 150S.

Beneath the skin, however, it was clear that much had changed. Maserati finally issued the Foglio di Montaggio for 2401 on April 26, 1956, only three days before the Mille Miglia. 2401 proved luckless, eventually succumbing to brake troubles caused by a downpour. In the following month Maserati made the most radical changes yet to their factory development car. Chassis 2401 received the sleek and beautiful long-nose bodywork that immediately differentiated it from its early configuration, and it was left unpainted.

In May 1956, Cesare Perdisa tested the new and improved 2401 at Monza, ushering in a new era of racing success for Maserati’s 200S. Famed French Maserati team driver Jean Behra was enlisted to pilot the 200S at the Grand Prix di Bari on the Adriatic coast. His talent helped him to capture an overall victory and record the fastest lap of the race.

After Bari, the 200S made a journey into Germany to compete on the legendary Nürburgring – to many, the supreme test of a sports car. On August 1, Stirling Moss piloted the bare aluminum 200S, fitted with a 1.5-liter engine, to a 2nd place finish behind Herrmann’s 550A in the Rheinland Cup sports car race. During the battle for first, Moss managed to establish the fastest lap of the race at 10 minutes, 13.3 seconds, and in so doing, proved that the 200S was a match for the best that Germany had to offer.

The next month, 2401 was again returned to Modena, completing the final stage of its progress towards becoming a 200SI. SI stood for Sport Internazionale in recognition of its compliance with the new FIA mandates.

Chassis 2401 immediately became the subject of Maserati literature, including the factory’s sales brochure and specification sheets. Shortly after the Grand Prix of Caracas in Venezuela, the Maserati factory sold 2401, by then fully developed and race-proven, to Venezuelan privateer Ettore Chimeri. The car spent time with several owners until 1979, when it was sold to Nobuo Harada of Japan and displayed as a prized trophy for some 22 years in the Kawaguchiko Motor Museum.
